CELS and First District RESA Host Leadership Academy
First District RESA and Georgia Southern University’s Center for Educational Leadership and Service partnered to present the Summer Leadership Academy on June 24. The event for educational leaders throughout the FDRESA service area was held at the College of Education. The one day conference provided information and training sessions for school and system administrators to address the implementation of both the Common Core GPS Curriculum and the Teacher and Leader Keys Effectiveness Systems in Georgia. Over 150 school and system leaders attended.
Assistant Professor Jason LaFrance, director of CELS, said the academy is one of many collaborations he plans between COE and RESA designed to assist school districts in improving leadership within schools and ultimately increasing student performance. “I think the turnout is a clear indication that our school leaders are eager to get information and share their experiences. We’re delighted to help facilitate that interaction,” he said.
